After a four-month delay due to the dual writers’ and actors’ strikes, the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards finally handed out awards on Monday night. The ceremony was scheduled for September 2023, but the Hollywood labor disputes for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences moved the show to January 2024. Despite the delay, actor and comedian Anthony Anderson remained as host.
The night’s big winners were Succession, The Bear, and Beef, who combined to win 17 of the 27 awards presented on the telecast. Below, you’ll find information on how to stream all the major winners from the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards.
After three terrific seasons, Succession creator Jesse Armstrong ended the series after the fourth season. After an epic season 3 finale, season 4 starts 48 hours before GoJo acquires Waystar Royco. After cutting out his children from the acquisition, Logan (Brian Cox) sets his sights on buying PGM. However, the trio of Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Roman (Kieran Culkin), and Shiv (Sarah Snook) attempt to thwart their father’s plans and buy PGM for themselves.
Succession was met with universal acclaim and garnered 27 nominations, 14 of them in major (program, acting, directing, and writing) categories.
